Pre-Christmas Maladie

I am sooo happy that I was reminded to plant paper whites this year
they have been so lovely to look at as I suffer with this cold, flu.... whatever it is.

I am feeling like my body has been taken over by some alien form
but happy to say that I am thankful that
I am enjoying the look of these from the couch... where I have finally settled today.

Anyway, in the meantime I am hoping to slowly get my decorating finished this week...
but for now I am simply,

lounging with my dog Jack
and my many cups of tea!

  1. I am very sorry to hear that you are suffering from an ugly cold. Your paper whites do look marvellous and you must be really enjoying them. I have never grown them, one day perhaps. Get well soon!
    Hugs, Cindy

  2. Hope you are over the cold/flu in a few days in time to finish your decorating and bake Christmas goodies. You've inspired me yet again! this time with your Paper Whites. Next year, (what month please?) I plan to follow suit.

  3. Your paper whites are doing quite well! Mine were stuck for a bit, but seem to have grown in the past few days.

    Take care of yourself & I hope you feel better soon!

  4. Great looking paper whites.... So sorry that you are not feeling well.
    Drink lots of fluids... get plenty of rest.....
    Hope you feel better soon!!

  5. Donna, I'm sorry you caught the cold bug before Christmas. I hope you will be feeling much better soon. Resting on the couch and drinking tea should help. I love your beautiful display of paperwhites and dogwood sticks on the counter! They bring lots of cheer. Take care. Pam

  6. Hi Jack, take care of Donna now.

    Feel better Donna!

  7. They are lovely! Hope you feel better!,

  8. That reminds me. How is Jack settling in? I meant to plant paperwhites and didn't and now I'm jealous of your's. I'm NOT jealous of your cold/flu!

  9. Sorry you're under the weather! This is not the time of year to be sick. (Not that there is ever a good time, is there?) Jack is such a cutie! I'm sure he's a great comfort, he looks like a cuddly teddy bear.

    Your paper whites look fantastic.

  10. We are just getting over a nasty cold ourselves, so we know how miserable they are! I am hoping you feel better soon, the paper whites are really just glorious!

  11. Ugh! So sorry you've been under the weather. But your paper whites look great! I'm growing a pot of paperwhites for the first time this year, and I have two stalks blooming right now! YAY!!!
